such as spike its coverage not just copenhagen but it is going up and up and it seems we're doing something right and that is because the staff is so committed to speaking to journalists were in the old days they would sit in the office and do research. they are still doing that now but now they are more willing to talk to the press and that makes me happy also be cuss number one, we have a tremendous communications staff is an honor to work with it is like madmen without the cigarettes and booze. we have a leadership from the first-rate bert -- board fell lets us do what we want to do just like bloomberg president and steve ross miami dolphins owner, and al gore and i can go on. third we have a president who, for years, has been telling our staff which is growing to communicate and do it well. it is great to be with you and our great staff. before i call up jonathan lash to speak just a couple of logistical things. turnoff yourself of. he will speak half of the times "60 minutes" then open it up to answering your questions. you have myself end jessica over there in the black will have micr
, in copenhagen, they were offering the best chance to deal with the climate and ecosystems. >> be we need to be able to price carbon as well as understand what the risk of return is. business will be able to unleash this entire potential for a new low carbon economy. it is absolutely critical that we get this deal. whether we get in copenhagen, that is uncertain but we will have a path forward. i think this is the best way forward in order to solve this problem. >> president obama has announced when he is going. he went with all the other leaders. what does this mean for the meeting? >> what we have seen over the past couple of weeks is certainly an increased expectation that we will get out of copenhagen. i think what obama has done recently by setting up a provisional target, by changing the arrival date towards the end of the session which is more important, also by offering some financial increased commitment to help developing countries. >> what do you think about the prospects for a global approach for dealing with this most global of problems. this is a very attractive points? >> a
, such as the u.n. human rights council, and was recently the copenhagen climate change conference, which demonstrated spectacularly the fatuousness of such international structures, eye of common purpose, a common interest,, and governance. and yet the value of these international institutions and paper agreements seems to leave no lasting impression. did we really learn nothing from the early 20th-century experience, with its repeated and dimmed attempts to regulate the capital ships of the great powers for unable conferences? did we really learn nothing from the kellogg pact, whose signatories incidently included germany and japan? it abolished war forever. and inserted a that the u.s. secretary of state won the nobel peace prize. sound familiar? but at least they ashley sign be useless treaty. obama got it for imagined useless treaty, most notably the one he has been insisting on from prague to new york on universal nuclear disarmament. the night it of obama can be seen in his most recent poll, the dramatic -- the most dramatic of which appeared on september 24, one day after obama sp
is the security of the citizens. >> thank you mr. speaker. given the disappointing finish to the copenhagen conference what action can my honorable friend tell us he will be taking in order to keep the momentum up on this absolutely vital task of climate change? >> mr. speaker, for the first time the world was able to agree that we should not have a climate change policy that did not address the problems of rising temperatures and the 2% limit was agreed by all countries. we also have agreement countries will notify what they will do by 2020 and they've got to do so by january 31st. we are obviously pressing countries to be in the position they can reduce the amount of gigatons in carbon and greenhouse gas emissions from the mid 50's in 2020 to the mid 40's and there has been a great transparency achieved with every country agreeing to report what they are doing that we have not yet got the international duty that we need and we haven't yet got the announcement from all countries they support the 50% reduction by 2015. that is what is still to be done and i agree we must not talk to all tho
of copenhagen he walked into a meeting supposed to be a bilateral with china, the chinese were trying to elevate him and he broke in and sat next to llewelyn from brazil, changed the game and got the deal, the five power deal with ever and it's perfectly fits this narrative of obama savings the day of what would have been complete disaster and i don't want to get into great detail but i've noticed this in the cuba policy i tracked closely even up to two or three days before the summit of the americas jeffrey, ambassador, former ambassador to mexico was essentially delivering, excuse this, richard, the neoconservative line of latin america. there was no evidence they were willing to say to diprete position where obama is coming. when he got the portfolio 180-degree shift in the direction comes of this is interesting you set up one attention challenges you got to be losing terribly to get his attention but when you do get his attention there is a very need almost to actually fundamentally change the dynamics and feel that and when you get this access show the narrative in the stories. >> i judge t
in copenhagen where he said, the problem is the white people in the world. the second question is there is a country -- a company in brazil that is an offshore drilling company that in june, the obama administration gave a $15 billion loan to and i think is quite ironic that in february, george soros bought majority shares in that company. effectively, this administration has paid back george soros for getting elected with taxpayer funds. guest: i do not know anything about the second issue, but i can comment on the first. the brazilian president is a colorful, charismatic leader. then he has been for some to, to a half years. very annoyed that they have had to do things that the united states and europe-not have to do. and he has -- have not had to do. and he has been very open about saying that they have not had to do things that they've had to do in developing countries. host: salt lake city, democratic cruller. caller: we have -- and democratic collar. host: we have more natural gas than any of the country. wyoming has a huge amount. we have not even put pipelines for the n
there was any disagreement amongst the countries of copenhagen that allowed the pitcher rise above 2 degrees by 2015. it would be something the would be very serious indeed and therefore, the major countries in the world and not all countries except that at the conclusion and are working within that. the key issue now is for the countries to make the cut ends as they promised to do to the national plan for climate change target's and make them public and internationally registered so that we can bring people together probably in the next few months to see what progress we can make on getting a final climate change agreement. i will take two more. yes. >> brann willson from the sun. returning to the aplington keys to talk to the importance of learning lessons from this case. we now have a specific proposal on the table to allow full publication's reviews protecting the anonymity of the children and witnesses. are you prepared to change your mind and back of that proposal? >> i think the you have got to get to the background of what's happened here before you drawback to that conclusion. all o
're trying to come up with some follow-on actions to the copenhagen meeting. it was not obviously what people had hoped for, but it did give us a starting point to make the case that we have to make. and transferring and mitigating and technology are all part of that. . those amounts would swamp current development assistance. what's the prospect for making that assistance truly additional, so it doesn't rob peter to pay paul, and secondly, what are your plans for implementation within the u.s. government. would it be teleusaid, or separate? how would it be coordinated? >> some of it would be through usaid and the state department and some would be through contributions to multilateral institutions like the world bank. we are just beginning to work out how best to deliver thon commitment. it's a fair question, fred, how much of it is additive and how much of it is out of the current budget. we don't know that yet, because we don't know what the congress is going to do. we obviously believe that this is a critical point. we would hope that with the stimulus money, we will actually be competiti
